Connect Seattle

Connect Seattle is a long-term citywide campaign to create a complete network of bikeways connecting neighborhoods across the city so everyone can ride safely. The campaign is powered by a network of neighborhood teams led by caring neighbors working together.

Connect Seattle's long-term priority is to secure funding to build 250 miles of new protected bike lanes, neighborhood greenways, and trails in the next decade. Our short-term priorities include important projects in Ballard, Downtown, Northgate, Portage Bay, Rainier Valley and the Westlake Corridor.
